Romanian Town(version 1.0 in developing)

The project started 1 year ago from a joke,but I wanted to became real.After months of debating and searching a team,assaulted by replies like "It will never be completed" or "It's just a joke" I abandoned it.Now I restarted the work and finished the 1.0 version
PLEASE DON'T SPAM THIS THREAD with replies like "It sucks" or "It will never be ready",please use only constructive critics if you don't like something,something like "unit X is not good,it must be replaced by Y or need more work at Z part or change color etc."

In the past few years I've seen a huge number of posters trying to devise Romanian towns or Slavic towns consisting of (no offence) some of the most obscure mythological creatures imaginable, totally overlooking the fact no official HoMM town has ever been based entirely on one specific real-world mythology or culture.

It's never something equally unexplored like Hawaiian or Indonesian or Celtic mythology though; absolutely always either Romanian or Slavic.

Maybe it's a fad?

Can you post the link of at least one thread with a Romanian townExcept mine of course

Also I'm a patriot that's why I'm making a Romanian town.

I don't mean just HC but all the various MM forums. There were a lot of them submitted to Nival's competitions around 2006. And it had been going on since before then AFAIK.

Anyway that's not an attempt to hijack your thread or anything. Good luck with the town!

@LizardWarrior

Although i find the idea of replacing Rampart repulsive (it's my fav town) i wish you good look on your mod.

I do have a point of constructive criticism though.

I don't think that mixing undead and living creatures in a town is a good idea. Not only for the moral effect on living creatures, destroy undead spell effecting your own army etc. but also because it feels bad as a concept (even more when there's already a Necropolis).

For instance, Vampires are indeed a great example of the Romanian mythology (not denying that) but since they are already part of the Necropolis you could have Vampire hunters in the Romanian town instead (that have hatred damage on Vampires and so on).

But anyway, that's just a suggestion.

Thanks for suggestions!

I don't think it would be good to remove the vampires,Romania is well-know for the vampire stories,without them my country would be unknown and only a small percent of outsiders would know about it.Vampires are a kind of "national emblem".Moroi and Strigoi are again some well know undead in Romanian mythology and expelling them from the town would be a little to much.I thought I could make the just "un-living" and to don't be affected by morale,but isn't a good idea...I also planned to give to all heroes leadership as starting skill to avoid this problem,but this isn't a good idea either.

Rampart is the best for a romanian town. But also the hardest, needs perfect blending. If you could find several dwellings coming from same source/artist, they will have closer textures. They differ too much right now, and lights angles too. Eventually you can clone the roof texture on each one, the roof is the first thing that could tie them together.

It's hard to find buildings which will fit perfect in Rampart environment,actually 5 buildings are from real photos found on google and the other 2 houses and town hall are the original buildings retextured by me in photoshop,textures again copied from real photos found on google.

I will try to change their brightness and see what happens.

You can make the living have always positive morale. That was not the point.

My point was that there is already a town with only undead creatures and all other towns (even the evil allied ones) can't stand them in their army because they are undead. That was a nice touch by Heroes III makers and to make a town that has both undead and living isn't a good concept.

But anyway, that's just my opinion, do as you please.

Wow looks great! Thank you so much for working on it again i cant wait until its out. My suggestion for the tier 6 creature isnt very fitting for the atmosphere but maybe it could still work. A cockatrice and the upgrade Fierce Cockatrice, no ones done it before and it should be pretty strong, since it is half dragon after all. Also sharpshooters are waay too strong for  a tier 3 Good luck with it!

oh and also, i do agree with hero of light, especially the fact that vampires are already in necropolis. I think maybe you should change their image a bit and their name. maybe Counts and their upgrade Vampire Counts. maybe give them some kind of hat or something and maybe beards could look good, it would be better in my opinion. but still great job

@fersch:Cockatrice don't have any connection with Romania,so I won't put them,also Sharpshooter will have stats changed so he will fit as level 3.I'm also planning to make the Transylvanean Count and hero Vlad Tepes will upgrade vampires into these counts.

But what about the transylvanian naked necked chicken? , cockatrices are half chicken and thats a breed of chicken only from romania. Anyway ive been looking up creatures from romania, for a tier 6 i think you could do a Urias. For the Urias' appearance id say maybe get a giant and recolor and decorate him in some way, youd know more than i would im sure

or you could have 4 vampires units?

tier 2 or 3 lesser vampires with just life drain. or maybe just bats.

tier 5 or 6 the vampires counts with an hypnosis ability. (actually they could literally cast the hypnose spell when attacking, with success depending exclusively on the number of vampires and total number of HPs of the target)

@Fauch I love the idea of bats he should do them
Bats --> Vampire bats (with life drain) as a tier 2

actually I think he had already done them, so it should be quick. or maybe that was in another town.

I would also suggest to make vampires more like dracula and less like nosferatu
